Come Experience "A Taste of Italy"
















Come experience a taste of Italy! Feel like you are in Italy without leaving your own city.
I will be hosting a cooking lesson party on Monday's starting September 12th @ either 11am or 6:00p.m. We will be making two incredible dishes from the regions of Tuscany.

The Italian cuisine was reflected by the cultural variety of the regions in italy and by the Italian history, which was influenced from Greek, Roman, Norman and Arab civilizations. The Italian cuisine is considered as a prime example for a 'perfecto' cuisine, and is imitated all over the world.

The Roman cuisine for example usually uses sheep's cheese and organic meat , on the other hand, Tuscan cooking is using white beans and bread without salt. In Rome the pizzas are very thin like crackers, and Neapolitan and Sicilian pizzas are thicker. than their counterparts. The Northern Italian dishes are influenced by French cooking, because of the proximity of the French border. Emilia-Romagna is the number one with wheat production in italy, and is also known for their stuffed pasta. Napoli is considered as the home of pizza and mozarella.


This class will be held in my Russian Hill kitchen in San Francisco.
